The one in the green bottom right was balling his eyes out

Nothing pleases me more than watching parents spending hundreds if not thousands on tickets to take their little treasures to the footie for Christmas/birthdays only for them to lose

A good lesson that life isn't always fair

Brilliant.

Seems like they tarmac up all the trip hazardous in the lead up to a game and then dig it all up again when there's a window to do move paving.

No, but The Club say several thousand general admission seats which rules out hospitality at the front, and all subject to the safety test.  Anything between 3000 and 5000 is my guess.

Dear Supporter,

We are preparing to partially open the new Anfield Road upper tier for the first time at the Manchester United fixture on December 17. This is part of a phased opening programme of the new expanded Anfield Road Stand and is subject to an internal emergency conditions test managed in conjunction with Liverpool City Council and a public test event.

For this important test event we are inviting you to take part on Monday 11th December which will feature a live Q&A with manager Jürgen Klopp.

Timings:

18:00 Turnstiles open

19:00 Event Starts

19:20 Half Time

19:30 Second Half

20:00 Event Finishes

This free event is an important part of the matchday preparation and the phased opening of the new Anfield Road Stand, which when

2014 is the year that they started with phase 1 of this expansion.

Will have taken nigh on 10 years to get to 61k capacity and a moderate improvement in terms of architecture. In terms of facilities, improvements to public realm (shop, greenery) etc it's been good.

Main bug bears are it's taken them too long. 10 years!  :butt You'd hope at least the main stand and training complex has been paid for already and the MD has been planning how to expand that KOP to over 15,000. 

Scandalous though how much they are charging for some tickets (over £350 in corporate).  :no

Wont be expanded again without major changes to public transport IMO

KOP has a church behind it and a major road with bus routes, good luck shifting them, and kenny requires a while street of houses to be bought again due to daylight restrictions doesnt it?

Cant see anfield getting any bigger, dunno why they didnt do the Annie road to do the corners with Main and Kenny

To go from 45>60 thousand in the same ground given the challenges of the area is pretty much a job well done I think. Would have been done a couple of years ago too if not for Covid.

I think the biggest problems were probably made in the past. If they could have done a few thousand more seats in the upper Kenny it would have been nice. See also the Upper ARE I suppose, wouldn't have needed to do this expansion then! Kop an interesting one too because of what is behind it and also the fact there's a limit to what you can do with a single tier stand, you aren't going to get 20 thousand unless it's standing like the Yellow Wall or double tiered which would never happen with the Kop.

I don't really see what else they can do in the rest of our lifetimes to increase the capacity much. Maybe once we're all gone they can do one of those eight-tiered designs that you always see on here. Some still wouldn't be able to get tickets.

Anything is possible with real vision and great commercial team. Lot of pessimistic posters (as per usual on RAWK, not directed personally). But posters normally laugh off or counter sarcastically with those silly images of a Starbucks stand 200ft high.  ;D

Land behind KOP is available, other properties are scarce. The church is hardly used and can't see why they wouldn't agree to a short move. Best position for 20 years.

That corner with ARE and SKDS is so ugly as is the KOP frontage outside.

The thing is though mate, these topics have been discussed hundreds of times on here by people who have a really good grasp of the many challenges it takes to build a stand in such a built up area. It’s pretty obvious that having a tonne of money and a vision doesn’t necessarily mean quick action. Look at Stamford bridge, old Trafford, St James park. I’m really pleased that this thread has mainly been rooted in realistic expectations on what actually can happen in the future. Because as much as we all want tickets and corners and matching stands and nice looking things, Anfield is and always was a hodgepodge of mis-matched facilities and immediate surroundings that mean any cohesive plan is hard to come by let alone implement. If one wants to indulge in grand visions with shit loads of money, then the Skyscraper City thread is great for that.

Totally get it. Cost's huge money and the whole financially viable aspect. They said the same about the ARE, then added tons more hospitality.

I think your right, Peter did share something I believe on the KOP added seats aspect. I was just referring to expanding this particular stand because it is possible. Saying something is a pipedream and not realistic isn't actually accurate, and shuts down the debate.

Anyway we are digressing and back to ARE, that far left corner needs to be done. Signage being completed today I believe and this is good to go I think for the 17th. Outside is being cleared up. Actual stand alone looks very imposing in keeping with the MS. Think we'll have 58k in for the 17th Dec.

The transformation is amazing





The hospitality is in line with other clubs, my mates two seats in the Beautiful Game lounge are about £5k a season, his seats at the Emirates cost more. Man Utd charge between £270 and £500 per game, City charge similar.
